"American Idol" contestants serenade Katy Perry with her new Christmas song

ABC/Craig Sjodin

In March, Katy Perry will return to ABC as a judge on American Idol.  She's just posted a clip from the upcoming season, showing a crowd of contestants on stage during Hollywood Week, serenading her, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.  However, all their faces are blurred out, so you can't see who made it through in advance.

The most interesting part of the clip, though, is that the song the contestants are singing is Katy's brand-new holiday tune, "Cozy Little Christmas." 

"One of the BEST gifts of being an artist is when people joyfully sing back the lyrics that you wrote," she captioned the clip. "So excited to reveal the faces of these beautiful @AmericanIdol voices starting March 3rd on @abcnetwork."

As previously reported, American Idol will return to ABC Sunday night, March 3 with a two-hour episode starting at 8 p.m. ET.
